New products: Hitachi and Hyundai

24 April 2008

An error in last month's CE meant new machines from Hitachi and Hyundai were missing from the “At a glance...” table.

Hitachi's new products at Intermat will include Zaxis 3 versions of its 25, 28, 35, 52 and 67 tonne-class crawler excavators, which are now fitted with Stage IIIA engines. The company is also launching its new ZW wheeled loader range at the show, again these models feature Stage IIIA engines.

Hyundai's Intermat launches include its flagship 50 tonne crawler excavator, the R500LC-7. Another top of the range addition is the company's 30 tonne HL780-7A wheeled loader. The loader is powered by the same Stage IIIA Cummins engine as Hyundai's new excavator, but it is rated slightly higher at 259 kW.
